Saddam - The Musical?

Say what you will about Saddam Hussein - military genius or crazed psychopath, I don't care. This isn't a political blog. I just want to point out that I think this picture looks like a scene from "Saddam - The Musical." Look at the staging, with one man right in front of the other, as well as the onlookers on the sides. Also, though it's an action shot of sorts, you can see that both men are raising their arms, sort of like the final pose in "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina" from Evita or "It's An Art" from Working. Plus, Saddam sort of has that Topol thing going on. If you look very closely, you'll see that he's really saying "TRADITION!"

What are some songs we might hear in Saddam - The Musical?

Saddam - The Musical - B (in the right hands, it could be quite good)

I want Trey Parker and Matt Stone to write it.

So wrong, and yet, so funny. Doesn't Eva hold both her hands up at the end of "Don't Cry for Me Argentia?" Maybe only Susan did it that way at PAB, but she was amazing...

Yes, typically Evita does a double arm raise, but you get the point: power hungry government leader + arm raise of some variety = hit musical!

To the tune of Destiny Child's "Soldier"-
"where my soldiers at? In Irag, In Irag"
